The long months of of waiting are finally over and now we have fully working solution in our hands. There was pretty much drama around the release and it could even never happen. But now it’s all over and everyone can free their iDevice from App Store’s limitations and enjoy various tweaks, mods, interface extensions and all the good stuff that comes from Cydia.


Absinthe 2.0 Is Here To Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1!

Finally iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak has became public. Absinthe 2.0 rushes to our hard drives like a Flashman as we finally get free out of Apple’s jail and are welcome to use Cydia advantages at the full throttle. The long months of waiting are over for those who has been waiting for iOS 5.1 and 5.1.1 jb (which is pretty much the same).

The iOS hackers that gathered at this year’s HITB conference to discuss the most interesting and disturbing questions concerning jail breaking world made thousands of people happier with this release. To get use of Absinthe right now follow this iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak tutorial. There are pretty many pluses in this release.  Let’s see which are those.

First of all, if you are a jailbreaker but was afraid to update to something higher than 5.0.1 – leave your fears aside. Now the latest Apple’s firmware can be hacked easily in just few minutes. Update, run Absinthe, have fun.

If you were on iOS 5.1/5.1.1 and weren’t able (or didn’t want) to downgrade to lower firmware with untethered jailbreak – from this moment on your hands won’t be trembling when you’ll accidentally see that the device’s battery is almost zero. As the new solution is untethered there’s no need to connect Apple’s gadget to the computer each time it powers down or reboots. Forget about redsn0w tethered  boot (at least till the iOS 6 release).

But if you have recently update iOS 5.1.1 to the build 9B208 on iPhone 4 GSM you need to download Absinthe 2.0.2 and complete jailbreaking process.

And one more thing: you can stay on the most up to date firmware as long as you want. Just make sure that your automatic iTunes and iCloud updates are off.

Hackers won one more battle against fruit corporation. The HITB was supposed to make their community even stronger. Let’s see what they can do after WWDC 2012 takes place. As was rumored before it should bring new Retina display MacBooks and iOS 6. It’s logical to assume that that piece of code will be protected even stronger than previous issues. By releasing Absinthe 2.0 hackers community showed that previous exploits must be closed. We can be sure that pod2g and company should start searching for another kind of vulnerabilities than those that were used before. Take your popcorn with you, find and comfortable place and prepare to watch what the future holds.

Update: If Absinthe 2.0 not working the fix it here and enjoy.

MuscleNerd At HITB 2012 – Speech Highlights

One of the most glorious today’s hackers – MuscleNerd presented his speech at HITB 2012. The conference gathered the iSO hacking elite so they have much to say this year. Despite there’s only one day left till the end, two main events were scheduled exactly at Thursday and Friday. The second and most awaiting appearance is the presentation of iOS 5.1.1 untethered jailbreak. You can read more about it here. But this article is mostly about MuscleNerd at HITB 2012 and his speech about iPhone baseband unlocking.

The conference is a must among security professionals all around the world. It started in Malaysia in 2002 as a small meeting of security specialists and grew to the event that takes place in two spots around the globe (Malaysia and Netherlands) at the same time.

So what’s so interesting about hacker’s report? First of all, ‘Evolution of The iPhone Baseband And Unlocks’ covers all the main aspects of iPhone’s baseband hacking since the very beginning. It also explains how hackers are searching for exploits and produce different types of unlocks for various basebands. Those of you who want to know more about it and have corresponding technical knowledge, I’d recommend to read the full report (link below). The reading contains lots of hardware and software related pieces of programming so you’d better be prepared.

Some highlights of MuscleNerd’s speech at HITB:

  • Intrduction. He modestly introduces himself as a mamber of  iPhone Dev Team and tech editor of iOS Hacker’s Handbook by Miller, Blazakis, DaiZovi, Esser, Iozzo, Weinmann (2012)
  • General BB environment. Details on communication with baseband and facts about bb crashes
  • 3G/3GS BB crash log
  • iPhone 4 BB crash log
  • Hidden changelogs. Methods of tracking bb fixes on older iPhones
  • Diagnostic and cal routines
  • Diagnostic embedded help
  • Diagnostic routine examples
  • AT commands
  • AT commands disable bits
  • iPhone 2G SW (software) unlock
  • iPhone 3G SW (software) unlock
  • 3G/3GS BB tasks
  • ultrasnow on 3G/3GS
  • iPhone 4 software unlock. A much more challenging obstacle on the iPhone 4
  • SIM interposer unlocks
  • iPhone 4 carrier activation
  • iPhone 4 activation ticket

That’s nearly the half of MuscleNerd’s speech on HITB but as you can see it covers pretty much all the interesting aspects of unlocking process. If you were lucky enough to visit the conference in person – that’s awesome, if not – here’s the slideshow with hacker’s speech.

Update: Use this guide to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 using Absinthe 2.0

What do you think of unlocking future? Doesn’t it seem to you that hacking activity does down every year with every baseband or firmware release? Any chances the software unlock will still be available in the new iPhone versions? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
